Watching all the world sites get destroyed never gets old even though we have seen it all a million times. I knew I never tire of watching it. The effects are very well done here and a movie like this lives and dies on it's effects. Its neat to see how we used the alien tech to upgrade our tech. I liked the world that we humans had created since kicking alien ass the first time. Living on the moon would be a trip.
I don't know where all this ennui by beautiful people is coming from. Suck it Liam. You are too pretty for space. It's hard for me to like you. But damn it, I did like you even though you were a bad boy and KNEW that we all liked you because you are the one who breaks all the rules because you are pretty. There, I said it. Had to be said.
I enjoy seeing Earth fight against overwhelming odds. We always win in the end. He are HUMANS after all and no alien butt wipes have any chance against us, right? I enjoyed learning about the humans who I knew were going to die while our pretty young heroes save the day. Everything happens by the numbers but it's a nice looking painting that results, if a not all together smart one.
Will this film change anything in your life? Nope and it shouldn't. But it's a worthy sequel to a film that rolled just as many eyes back in the day. Not a bad choice for a hot day matinee or a Netflix watch.
